The Weeknd is working on a new album as a follow up to his mega hit 2016 record Starboy. While fans are itching to hear anything from or get any details about the upcoming record, Travis Scott is assuring that it will be worth the wait.

The rapper and new dad took to Twitter to praise new music from The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, writing, “Abel new album is scray. It’s like when I heard him for the first time.”

Most recently, the “I Feel It Coming” crooner teamed up with Kendrick Lamar for the dark, synth-y “Pray For Me,” off the Black Panther soundtrack.
